Whatever else, a Michigan DUI case won't dismiss itself. My team and I know all the little things that determine whether a DUI charge can stick or not, and we know how and where to look for them.
The evidence in a drunk driving case involves a lot more than just your score on a breath (or blood) test, and includes:
• Everything that lead to your first contact with the police
• The field sobriety tests
• The methods used to collect and analyze your breath (or blood) sample
• The science underlying those results
We will meticulously sort through all of it so you can get out of this situation with as little damage as possible.

Expert Help for You
The whole court system has a kind of built-in alcohol bias that tends to "see" a drinking issue even where there isn't one. If you are required to submit to any kind of alcohol testing as a condition of your bond, you've already had your first taste of that.
We can help protect you from being treated as if you do have a drinking problem when you don't.
I not only speak the language of lawyers and judges, but I also speak the language of clinicians, and my team and I will speak on your behalf with unmatched authority when it comes to protecting you from the consequences of a DUI charge:
- The court system is legally required to deal with all alcohol and drug-related issues, even if there is nothing more than a potential problem. Although most Judges and probation officers are well-meaning, they are not clinicians.
- In the clinical world, it is widely recognized that the court system is usually at least a solid decade behind the most up-to-date counseling, education and treatment methods.
- The best (and most modern) clinical approach is to match people with the kind of help that actually fits their needs, instead of just mashing everyone into AA meetings or some other, one-size-fits-all kind of treatment, as the courts tend to do.
My team and I won't allow you to be left behind in that way. We will do everything to make sure that, if you do need any type of classes or counseling, you get the kind that's right for you.
Just as important, we'll protect you from getting any "help" you DON'T need.
Remember - Success in a DUI case is best determined by what does NOT happen to you.
The way to have less happen to you, of course, is to avoid as much of the legal fallout from a DUI charge as possible. My team and I know how to produce the very best outcome in every case we take.
We truly care about our clients, and we pour our hearts and souls into making sure we bring every case to the very best conclusion possible.
There is no better kind of DUI win than that.
